It is a super exciting day today with lots and lots of news. We're having our Colour Revamp to freshen up our colour collections plus the retiring list is out today with all the products we are farewelling to make way for exciting new things.
Head over here to my online store to see what is retiring:
(Note: Some of these bundled products will still be available in the new catalogue as individual products - the bundled discount is the bit that is retiring. Check the individual stamps to see if that products is going.)
Retiring Everything Else
Now you will probably notice quite a few of our colours on that retiring list and that is because we are having a colour revamp.
Every 3 - 5 years Stampin' Up! look closely at our colours and do a bit of a freshen up. This one is a bigger revamp - retiring some colours that were getting a little tired and bringing in some gorgeous new shades. They look so fabulous - I'm really excited about this and can't wait to play with the new colours.
As those of you with eagle eyes may spot in that picture above, SU are also making a change to their ink pads with a new design. It opens like a compact, has a snugger fitting lid and they stack beautifully.
Here's a summary of the colour changes:
We will have our 4 colour families - Brights, Regals, Neutrals and Subtles - each with 10 colours of classic ink, plus a Basics collection with White, Vanilla and Black.
We will also have our 2 In Colour collections with 5 colours in each. So 53 colours in total.

If you place your order before then for any of these colours your order will be filled (it may be on backorder if demand is strong.) After 7th May it is while stocks last only. Single colour cardstock, bundles ink collections, markers and colour embellishments are while stocks last now .
Watch this space - we have lots of fresh new colours coming your way. They're really lovely.
INK CADDY NEWS
Our ink caddy is retiring. For those of you who have one - our new ink pads will fit into the caddy but they won't click into place so you'll need to be extra careful when turning it. Watch this space for new storage options down the track. The new ink pads do stack nicely for easy storage.
Well that is sure a lot of exciting news today. I'll be back later with some pics from our Onstage event over the weekend.
If you've placed an order in the last 12 months then a new catalogue will be on its way to you in May - keep an eye on the post. (Isn't it gorgeous - I think it is my favourite cover in ages and the insides are just as spiffy. Join my team today and you could be having a browse online at it now!)
If you've changed your address in that time let me know and I'll update my records. If you haven't ordered in a while and would like a catalogue - get in touch, or place a retired list order and qualify for a free catalogue.
Give a holler if you've got any questions - happy to help.
